PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISSI
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light and where there is sadness, joy.
O Lord, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
